Homemade Spicy Kale Chips

When it comes to sweet vs salty, I am definitely a sweet person. Chocolate is my biggest weakness. Lately, when I’m craving a salty snack I always want to grab a bag of chips which is the not best choice for a salty treat except for pop chips of course!
There has been so much hype about kale and how good it is for you. Last week, I ventured to Trader Joe’s and found pre washed chopped kale, which is one of their newest items! I used the pre chopped kale to make kale chips…which turned out delicious! I prepared the kale with some olive oil and seasonings and tossed it together with my best kitchen tool, my hands! …and baked them in a 400 degree oven for 15-17 minutes this photo doesn’t even do them justice My kale chips turned out awesome. They were crispy, crunchy, and had a hint of spice.
I ate the entire tray in one sitting. No joke.
Homemade Spicy Kale Chips
Ingredients:1 bag of pre washed kale1 tbsp of light olive oil1 tsp of salt1 tsp of pepper1 tsp of cayenne pepper1 pinch of red pepper flakes
Directions:Coat the kale with 1 tbsp of olive oil and mix well. TIP: 1 tbsp doesn’t seem like enough but if you add too much olive oil the chips will become soggy. Add the salt, pepper, cayenne pepper, and red pepper flakes to the kale and olive oil and mix well with your hands so all the kale is evenly coated. Spread the kale on a baking sheet lined with foil. Make sure the kale is spread evenly. 
Bake for 15-17 minutes at 400 degrees until the kale is browned and crisp. If you want you chips super crispy, flip them over in the middle of baking (after 7 minutes or so)
These chips are extremely easy to make, full of flavor, and very filling. You are also getting in your vegetable servings while enjoying something that is nutritionally good for you!
Have a great day!
